In just a few weeks, the classic airline snack is getting the axe at one of America's biggest airlines.

Southwest Airlines will stop offering an iconic travel snack beginning August 1st.
Southwest says it wants passengers with peanut allergies to feel safe on every flight.
A Southwest spokesman says the airline has offered them off and on since the early 1970's.
Not to worry: passengers will still get free snacks.
Depending on the flight, the airline will continue to offer pretzels, cookies, veggie chips and corn chips.
